Nielsen recently polled 12,000 American netizens and asked them about Hulu and Netflix. The survey results suggest that Netflix users are movie-watching HDTV buffs, while Hulu users are TV show-watching computer geeks.
According to Nielsen, Netflix users tend to watch only movies (53%) on their HDTVs via a gaming console (50%). Only 11% of subscribers watch only TV shows on the streaming service. Hulu users, however, prefer the computer (89%) to the big screen and watch mostly TV shows (73%).
